    Ash Bowls

    Here are a couple of bowls I finished this week. One is finished with the Doctors Workshop walnut oil. The ogee shaped one has one coat of Antique oil on it. I didn't figure it would be used as a kitchen item with the knots in it. It did have a little spalting in it. So it will make a nice nut or candy dish. The first is 9" X 3" and the ogee is 10" X 3". They were sanded to 600 grit using Vince's method and I was extremely pleased how they turned out. I probably won't be doing much turning for a while as my wife lost her second younger sibling in 15 months. He was 57 and her sister 15 months ago at age 58.

    The bowls came from a ash tree that was cut about 4 yrs ago so was pretty dry. So turned these from start to finish.


    Thanks to all. She said to say she appreciates all of your thoughts. They were way to young for sure.

    Bernie, I really like the shape of the first bowl. Gives it a real deep look.

    So sorry to hear of your wifes loss.

    Condolences to your wife. I am sorry that she has to have the heartache.

    Your wood working is great, as it always is. I also vote for #1, the bowl. The grain is in exactly the right spot. That is a bowl you can live with from now on.

    Enjoy,
